Atlanta Braves fans looking forward to this weeks series against the Marlins can also anticipate the beginning of another series: Faith Days with the Braves a post game Christian concert series featuring an Atlanta Braves starting pitcher as a guest speaker.
Presented by Third Coast Sports, the sister company to premier Christian artist booking agency Third Coast Artists Agency, Faith Days with the Braves will debut on Thursday at Turner Field after the Braves host the Marlins. Artists Aaron Shust and The Afters will perform after the game with Braves pitcher John Smoltz scheduled as the events guest speaker.
Faith Days with the Braves marks the Major League debut of the Third Coast Sports event, usually known as Faith Nights, which has gained popularity throughout minor league baseball, football, hockey, and other sports. A total of three Faith Days with the Braves will be held at Turner Field, with other dates scheduled for Aug. 13 and 26. Former Brave Sid Bream and Jeremy Camp will appear Aug. 13, and Braves pitcher Chris Reitsma and BarlowGirl are scheduled to appear during the Aug. 26 event. Larry the Cucumber and Bob the Tomato from VeggieTales will also appear at all three events.
"We saw an opportunity in Atlanta that we couldn't pass up," said Brent High, the president and partner of Third Coast Sports. "For the longest time, teams have reached out to churches to varying degrees to try to get groups. We're just bringing it all together and taking it up a notch. We are on the verge of something special."
In addition to the Braves, the Arizona Diamondbacks have tentatively scheduled a Faith Night for later this season, and over 70 Faith Nights have been scheduled throughout the year for minor league teams across the nation.
